Sadly, TL is vulnerable to an HIV epidemic

Sadly, Tuberculosis is vulnerable to an HIV epidemic.

There is still so much to be done working on the frontline in the fight against HIV.

It is a space Maluk Timor is passionate about and has a lot of clinical expertise in.

Program leader Mana Dircia and HCW counsellor Maun Ano are now focusing all their time on laying the groundwork to establish this new program.

We look forward to starting a new HIV clinical centre in partnership with the national program and with the blessing of patient advocacy groups.

As always our goal is to train up the local team and building on their knowledge and skill to provide a high quality, holistic service.
